Ginger and Tumeric Rake In $291M in Jamaica in 2012

by Admin

According to the Daily Observer in Jamaica, Tuesday March 5, 2013, medicinal herbs turmeric as well as ginger caused the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries to earn a whopping $291M in 2012.


This is excellent news for both the Ministry and the nation of Jamaica as one of our major earnings is export. The Ministry farms ginger on 207 acres of land while turmeric is grown on 123 acres.

It is excellent and impressive because Jamaica was greatly affected by hurricane Sandy and drought. However, throughout these natural disasters, it is a remarkable success.

Ginger and turmeric project began in February 2012 by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and a total of 284 farmers took part in this cultivation.

The general manager of the Ministry's export division, Mr. Sylburn Thomas reported to the JIS (Jamaica Information Service) News that more farmers will be engaged in this project thereby raising the demand from 60% to 100% by year 2014.

Good going Mr. Thomas, this will probably boost Jamaica's failing economy and will ensure continued employment.
